what to expect, how has it helped? what side effects? if any.is it the right decision vs bladder removal,even though it may only last 3 to 5 years' how do you get through the ups and downs of what to do? I keep arguing with myself to keep or remove and the pros and cons of both procedures,and you, I, just don't know, is this normal? the bladder damage is from radiation. how has this affected your life, job,hobbies,sex life? any comments or insight appreciated.
